A quality education is priceless — but not free.
Many parents don’t understand that funding in our district is not tied to our property taxes or our house prices. The State of California guarantees our kids a basic free education – but not a quality education, and it provides minimal per-child funding that is far lower than even the state average. If we want a quality education, we have to pay for it locally.
